We are volunteers.
From independent reporters to attorneys, students, stay at home parents, professors, retirees, scientists, business professionals… we operate as a collective of volunteers organizing to ensure that the information people use to make decisions is accurate and objective. Join us!
We are taking action.
We aim to empower people with information, while also holding journalists and online users accountable for spreading misinformation or propaganda. While we do fact check, we are not another fact checking organization. While we do report our findings, we are not another independent news source. Our ultimate goal is to stop the attack on our ability as a society to critically think and engage in constructive dialogue, democratically participate in our government, and have our opinions be heard and taken seriously by our representatives.
For far too long the government, media, and the elite class have dominated the conversation in our living rooms. In defense of our families, in the pursuit of truth, compassion for one another, and democratic ideals – we exist to hold our government and media accountable.
We will no longer be passive recipients of news. We refuse to give up our power to those who do not have our best interests in mind. We are taking action.
We are progressive.
Progressives believe in focusing on policy over party, and policy over profit.
Progressives believe in using research to make decisions, and using facts to debate policies. When the facts do not serve the interests of the elite class, whether it be Republicans or Democrats, policies are either dismissed or smeared with misinformation and propaganda.
While progressives tend to be Democrats in what is unfortunately a two-party system, they are also independents, Green party, Libertarians, and Republicans, amongst others. The media at large has contempt for us and, as a result, either peddles misinformation about progressives or ignores us altogether.
We exist to set the record straight about:
- What it means to be progressive
- The policies that must be passed to protect our communities, regardless of political party or wealth
- How it is possible to debate solutions without dividing our country
